  • Tebow's first NFL game

    I know I know it was just a preseason game and it wasn't against any big named defensive players but it was still his first game against an opponent. Overall I would give him a B-. I liked some things and didn't like other things. I felt he did a good job of finding his receivers with exception to one over thrown ball. His first throw was gorgeous if only the receiver had caught it. And of course we saw the reason Tim was picked in the first round, that final play TD. What a hit he took and delivered. But he got back up and thankfully didn't get injured. I'm sure that defensive player didn't expect a QB to come full force at him lol.

    But overall I don't think there was more negatives then positives. Yes he did get sacked and fumbled which obviously the haters out there loved to see. But handling the pressure will come with practice. There is only so much pressure you will receive during training camp. The main thing I'm worried about is the lack of a star receiver that will be there to make the play when the pass is slightly off target.

    Another topic that was brought up is Tebow's chances of moving ahead of Quinn for the backup spot. Since Quinn looked horrid yesterday, that definetly was put in Tebow's favor.

    It's interesting when they compared Tebow's stats to McCoy, Clausen and Bradford and overall Tebow had a better day. But you gotta remember that it wasn't against anyone special. Lets wait and see when he officially starts against the first stringers whenever that time comes.

    In case you missed any of Tebow's game yesterday here is a video with clips from it.

    keep in mind that clausen and bradford played against better defenses than tebow did.

    someone on espn was calling for denver to promote tebow to backup right now, cause quinn is flopping again.

    not sure timmy is ready for prime time yet, but hes going to prove a lot of guys wrong if he keeps playing solidly. i for one want to see him play against some guys who will be making a NFL team before I read too much into the first game though

      Agree with you Ed, he basically went against a bunch of 2nd/3rd string players, while he did OK, it didnt prove much to me, if it matters. Also that spiral he had on the ball sometimes was just bad
